SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA: Josh Brolin started trending on social media as the users considered him the lookalike of Aaron Brink, former pornstar and Club Q gay bar shooter Anderson Lee Aldrich's father. Brink appeared on CBS 8 interview and claimed he thought his son was dead as his ex-wife called him in 2016 to inform him that Nicholas Brink had changed his name to Anderson Aldrich and had killed himself.

“I thought he was dead. I mourned his loss. I had gone through a meltdown and thought I had lost my son," he told CBS 8. “His mother told me he changed his name because I was in Intervention and I had been a porno actor. He’s pissed off. He's pissed off at me. He wants to poke at the old man," Brink added.
